    Does anybody here have a daily driver with 40" or larger tires? I have a real short commute. I would like to see some pics also if you have them.

    I'm seeing the red X, but give me a min. They're on photobucket.
    I'll have to get them when I get home. NMCI at work won't let me get to Photobucket.:doah:

    Thanks guys to be honest everything on it was taken from this site. That pic is 3 paint jobs, 2 suspensions, a axle, rims and set of tires ago. About 2 years ago i believe. As much as I have loved the "Blazer" look with the top and everything it is now chopped up waiting for the cage and going the way of the trail only type
